Hi Scouts!

It is that time of year again to get out and go CAMPING!

Our Pack does 2 campouts every year.  One in the Spring and one in the fall.  Our 2017 Spring Family Campout is coming up quickly.  We will be camping at Camp Tomo-Chi-Chi Knolls in Kane county.  the address is:  40W095 Freeman Rd, Gilberts, IL 60136

We usually have a nice warm campfire, do a few skits, maybe sing a song or two, and learn a few skills or things about nature. Its a great time!

The campout will start on Saturday, May 20.  We will meet at the camp site on Saturday anytime after 10.  If you have sporting events on Saturday, come out after the sports events are done.  We will stay one night and come back on Sunday afternoon.

We plan on cooking dinner on Saturday and Breakfast on Sunday together.  To be good stewards of the environment, we will use reusable dishes, so please bring a mess kit for everyone in your family attending.  We will have wash stations to clean up afterwards.

The cost is free for Cub Scouts of Pack 23 and his family!  

Please sign up on the form below before May 17.  The form includes how many people from your family will be attending, so we know how much food to buy. 

Feel free to reference this handy Gear List to help you pack for the trip.  If you need a tent or any gear, send a note to a leader or enter it on the sign up form below.

The past few years it has been chilly at night on our campouts, so make sure you plan ahead.  A nice, warm sleeping bag is a must, and some sort of sleeping pad or air mattress is very helpful.  A couple warm blankets work well too.  If you have any questions, feel free to ask!
